    Better than I can, that's for sure! The guys at my shooting range both carry Springfield 1911's as their carry pieces. They were happy to see it and one of them gave it a run thru just to show off the out of box accuracy....it was damn good.

    I put 220 rounds thru it...only problems were with 2 of the 20 JHP's I put thru...need to find something it likes because it wasn't Black Hills or Golden Sabres, had a FTF in each mag of each type, 200 rds of FMJ of 2 ammo types was no problems.

    Try Winchester SXT's they're closer shaped to FMJ than any JHP I've seen. Golden Sabres have those dang ridges on the outside of the jacket, I think that hurts their realibility.

    Is the feed ramp polished??? That will help.

    Yes, I believe I said the same thing in the past - the SXTs were what I always carried in my 1911s since I got my first one in 1997. They are shaped more like a FMJ.

    I do plan to hopefully get a P99 QA soon, but I want one in Green and in 9mm. And, I don't have the cash just yet. I am thinking I may end up selling the Beretta I won (when I get it). That's still up in the air. I'll decide when its in my hands...

    Great gun you got there Buckeye. Good report. One question, do really want to sell your other guns? Just asking.

    I received the wood grips for her today, already looking at another pair...been a 1911 owner for only 6 days and I already have a bad feeling this might be a new obsession...

    Nice Springer! I now feel bad that I have to go through life with these two slugs! Mine both now wear Farrar Grips from Pearce Grips, I love Farrars on working guns. Regards, Richard

    Hey Buckeye you are now a member of the 45'oholic club, and you will suffer like the rest of us for the rest of your life. Good luck with that Beauty. Look at Richard, as he has been bit twice with those Beautys of his.
